Question about Yahoo Messenger

YM 9.0 Main Window pop-up

Problem: Yahoo Messenger 9.0 main window pop-ups every time on discovery of a new network connection. Due to specific of my work I need frequently enable/disable multiple VPN connections. Enabling VPN causes Yahoo Messenger to open main window and grab focus. I couldn’t find an option in “Preferences” how to disable this. Please help.

    Thanks for help, but this is not a problem. YIM opens Yahoo Insider Window on YIM start up. It, yes, can be disabled by unchecking Show Yahoo Insider .

    The problem I want to fix is different. YIM is already up and running OK, main window is closed (not just minimized, but closed, so the only icon is appearing in the icon area of task bar). Now, when I open a new network connection (whether wireless, for example, or VPN connection), the YIM re-open the Main Window (not insider; just Main Window with contacts, etc.)

    Thank you.

Problems with yahoo messenger 9


make sure you update all to the latest drivers via windows update

Make sure messenger is off, then go to regedit then open up HKEY CURRENT USER then open up SOFTWARE then open up MICROSOFT then open up WINDOWS then open up CURRENT VERSION then click on Internet Settings but dont open it just click on it then go half way down the list to find PROXY ENABLE,PROXY SERVER,PROXY OVERRIDE then click on PROXY ENABLE click modify binary and change from 0x00000000 (1) to 0x00000000 (0) then delete PROXY SERVER and PROXY OVERRIDE and there you go sign into messenger this has worked perfect for me hope it does for you.

or

It's either one of the two:

- Yahoo! servers are down for maintenance, the only fix would be to wait.

- Your connection preferences are wrong:
Messenger tab just above where you sign in and then click the Connection Preference option
